Hello to all. It's been far to long since I have checked in with my teams. Many things have happened in my life in the past few months. Here's a quick rundown!
My MIL suffered a stroke in Oct 2011. She lived in Oregon at the time so there wasn't much we could do from Arkansas to help her out, especially while my husband was busy with harvest. She entered a rehab after the stroke and began to make great strides in her recovery. The rehab hospital was less than a mile from her and her husband's home so it allowed him to visit with her very often. One day during his visit in Nov, he suffered a massive heart attack in her room and passed away. Luckily she was in the cafeteria at the time and did not have to witness everything that was going on. We were reluctant to take her out of the rehab because of insurance issues, so she stayed in Oregon until December when my husband, BIL and myself went out to settle her affairs and bring her home, which is another blog in itself! Until that time, her husband's children had been taking care of her needs. Which I am so grateful for!!!
Now we are back in Arkansas after a week in Oregon, it's the week before Christmas, I'm still not through with Christmas shopping and guess where my MIL is now going to live? If you guessed with my family, you would be correct! Luckily we had a spare bedroom for my daughter to move into and then my MIL took her room downstairs.
That's the rundown on my life for the past 4 months. A little busy and a lot stressed! I have made a mid-year's resolution though to get back with my Spark Teams! All of you make my attitude so much healthier, so I look forward to renewing friendships!
